in florida. poppy harlow is in iowa, ted rowlands is in wisconsin and kyung lah is in nevada. the highest unemployment rate of all of the toss-up rates at 11%. colorado, close to the national average. iowa, my home state, 5.2%. there they havy problem finding workers. ali, where you are in ohio, it's 7%. finally in florida, 8.7%. john zarrella, 8.7% unemployment, is that the co-issue voters will take to the ballot box in florida on tuesday? >> reporter: there's no question about it, chrischristine. they're already taking it to the ballot box. this is the early voting line. tomorrow is the last day for early voting and the line is probably two hours long already here now. the key issue here with unemployment, construction industry very hard hit, particularly new housing starts. the reason for that? there's such a glut of foreclosed existing homes that that supply is still out there to be absorbed. just up the coast, couple hundred miles, kennedy space center, coincidentallily, retiring the last of the space shuttles today, "atlantis." more than 4,000 highly skilled workers lost their jobs
times." reporting on general petraeus. our republican line from florida, what is your optimism level? caller: first of all, i am a snowbird from west chester, pa ennsylvania. host: i am going to put you on hold. you are breaking up. i think your cell phone coverage or your connection is not that good. the producer will get on the line with you. daniel in louisiana, the independence line. caller: hello and thank you for taking my call. i am very optimistic and very happy that obama won. i believe the country is going to move forward. he is not going to let the partisanship bring down this country. i always tell people how i came to this country when everybody was talking about reagan. how the deficit was going so much that our grandchildren would have to pay for it. then bush came in and this is the problem we have. i am also concerned about the people who call themselves christians. when you hear them talking, they are more hateful than any other human being. i am very optimistic about this country. host: where are you from originally? caller: i am from nigeria. host: carol, try agai
the unemployment rates, nevada, 11.8%. colorado still 8%. wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, florida, iowa. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tues
's got to stop. they're all doing it. and it's just major corruption. host: fran, jacksonville, florida. yes, we're listening. caller: oh, thank you. i was calling, wanted to know if i heard that excerpt from the wall street journal article correctly, that the president might be relenting on his pledge to not sign anything that didn't have that increase with the upper 1%. host: well, i think it's a little more nuanced than that. it says here again, here's the headline. obama is flexible of highest tax rates. and what it says is that it's not so much that he won't sign anything, it's more of how high the tax rates would go. so does that -- how do you see that? how do you reed that? caller: i would really be disappointed in that, because he's been fighting for that since the beginning. he relented a few years ago in order to save the unemployment insurance for the unemployed people and some other stipulations that were being held hostage by the g.o.p. but he doesn't have to do that any more. and right after he did that, they called that his tax breaks for the wealthy. and he absolutely di
for the popular vote in the national vote happened for ohio and florida, so the lgbt support for obama is bigger and ohio and florida and his winning margin. you can credibly argue that that vote mattered a lot, and if you think about an election where obama loses, ohio and florida, you think about a different election. then i looked at what if romney and obama had more or less split? quite frankly, it has been about that since clinton, roughly 3-1. that is the highest it has been, but quite frankly it has been high all through. what if they split it, more or less evenly, or romney got a little bit more? if romney had won 51%, they would have one of ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the president. and ohio and florida, all he had to do was win a little over 1/3 of the lgbt vote to win. while i do not think that suggests that suddenly in the way be are now talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i do not think it is quite that level of impact, but a little bit of movement in oflgbt vote in key states,
. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
are underperforming in ways you don't hear them talking about. they are about 70% below performance in florida today. they are not where they need to be in wisconsin or ohio. they are underperforming out in clark county in las vegas. if you look county by county where the democrats need to be, they are nowhere close where they need to be. on top of it this early vote business you hear the democrats talking about. they are cannibalizing. they are going after the early vote. we feel great where we are at. >> greta: why is wisconsin so close? >> wisconsin is always a tough state. how many times do we need to win wisconsin to make people republicans are good. >> you were off by 14 points in 2008? >> 2008 was terrible through the midwest for republicans. the democrats are nowhere near where they need to be. if you look at the top ten counties in wisconsin, scott walker won seven out of ten twice. we know where we need to be. if you go to wausau, eau claire, green bay, we are overperforming >> greta: the fact that scott walker won by four points in 2010 and then the recall hasing him down, republicans fou
